Loneliness is deadlier than obesity and should be considered a public health risk, experts have warned.
Those with bad social connections have a 50 percent increased risk of early death, compared to those with good social connections, a review of studies on loneliness suggests.
Researchers in the US looked at 218 studies into the health effects of loneliness and social isolation.
They discovered that social isolation raised a person’s risk of death by half, compared to obesity, which raised the risk of death by just 30 percent.
